It's Crochet Season!!

— 2 minute read

The heat index might be 100 degrees here in New Orleans, but I realize the rest of the northern hemisphere "might" have started cooling off by now. I'm definitely seeing a pick up in crochet activity, so I figured it was time to get the yarn out of the attic, crank up the air conditioning, and start moving on some projects that have been hibernating during our 10-month long summer. All for you, my fans. You who live in cooler climates. Hopefully a few sales will help accommodate for my higher electric bill to satisfy the masses with more patterns. :)

So, what do you guys want this season? Right now I'm working on a LYLAS cowl... yep, you heard right... Love You Like A Sister cowl. It's actually two interlocking cowls that you can work on with a friend or simply make 2 and share with your non-crocheting best friend like me.

THAT should be coming soon. But, what should come NEXT? Give me some ideas. I have a few, but I'd like the People to have a say.

Some ideas I'm contemplating right now:

  • Another man scarf. You guys seem to love these. Maybe there aren't enough in the marketplace. The new idea is more drapey, single-color, and light to show off a textured pattern.
  • Fleur de lis beanie hat using cables. I have yet to invent how this would actually work, but whatever will help my Saints, I will do...
  • Poop bag holder for my fellow dog-owners. I need some fun ideas for this though. No serious poop bag holders here.
  • Pillow cover with a textured scene, and eventually a complimentary set of squares that could be made into an afghan.

Which ones do you love/hate? Any special requests? Special requests that get made will get a free copy of that pattern or any other in my etsy shop. :)
